LDA Guest Bloggers – Luke Mears & Madison Pinckney are second-year law students at Duke University School of Law. We formed the Lyme Disease Advocacy Project in February of 2022 after our experiences contracting and combating Lyme disease. Our hope for the project was multifaceted. We sought to provide legal research and writing for the Lyme Disease Association, Inc. (LDA) hoping to answer legal questions as they lobbied for increased resources and better treatment for Lyme disease.
